What is your PASSION for? Who are you DEVOTED to? What are you FREE from?
What if someone asked you that ^ when you were in high school, or better yet, before you even left your 8th grade year? What if someone told then you could know who you are and be free of insecurity, shame, comparison, and unfulfilling [destructive] "fun"...now? What if someone told you that you had a calling on your life - all before the career fair or your prom date was decided?
On Thursday we welcomed almost 120 13-18 year-olds for a 10 day camp at our YWAM Kona Campus. They came from all over America, the Hawaiian Islands, and a few other countries, all for one thing: Deeper relationship with Jesus. Well, that and some fun in the sandy salty sun.
Drew and I are coleading Infusion Youth Camp with our good friends Jake and Kath Mason, and believe that this is a year for Infusion Youth to go international and multiply. Because, we believe in young people and we want to see them trained and equipped to reach their high schools, and the world.
No more waiting, no more hoping, no more "making it through" as the minority on a campus, where 1 in 25 students are projected to be believers. Jesus empowered us to live full lives - life and life abundant.
Our goal is that young people would understand that God is fully available in relationship to them and that they can live out wild and crazy lives to impact the world around them positively, today.
Why not? Jesus said they could.
